Kingston Joinery And West Port Windows And Doors Join Forces
Two of Britain’s timber fenestration businesses are joining forces to bring a new high-performance fire door-set to market. A new distribution deal will see East Yorkshire’s Kingston Joinery and Cumbria’s West Port Windows offer a complete turnkey package to some of the UK’s biggest commercial developers and contractors.
West Port’s Secured by Design-accredited fire door has withstood temperatures of almost 1000 degrees Celsius in testing and contained fires for 42 minutes – 40% longer than required for FD30 status. Kingston Joinery, meanwhile, are registered with International Fire Consultants (IFC), allowing their supervisors to self-certify on site, offering clients a quick and easy route to fully-accredited installations.
“The product we’re offering is an ideal solution for local authorities with high-rise towers, and is perfectly suited for flat entrance doors, communal doors, corridor doors and stairwell doors,” comments Craig O’Leary, Kingston Joinery’s MD. “We’re delighted to be working with West Port to offer such a comprehensive installation and accreditation package and feel it could make a really positive impact in the commercial development and refurbishment sectors.”
Sean Parnaby, West Port MD, comments: “Every door we provide has exceeded standard fire resistance times by 40% and comes supplied with relevant markings to verify the door’s fire integrity, as well as low-level thresholds for disability access. Available with five to seven-week lead times, this is an ideal solution for major UK developers, main contractors, local councils and housing associations.”
